Getting to Cordova

Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines flies twice daily. Flight 61 travels north bound from Seattle by way of Juneau and Yakutat. Flight 66 arrives southbound from Anchorage. Anchorage and Seattle are seen as gateways to Cordova. Check Alaska Airlines website for reservations, schedules, special fares and more.

Alaska Marine Highway

A breath-taking scenic 70-minute drive down Turnagain Arm from Anchorage to Whittier brings you to the Whittier Ferry Terminal with regular sailings to Cordova. Check the Alaska Marine Highway website to make your reservation, check schedules, fares, and general ferry news. You can also reach Cordova by ferry from Valdez.

The fast ferry takes just over 3 hours, but if you have time, the 6 hour ferry ride can be a treat as you sail across pristine and wild Prince William Sound. If you’re patient, observant and a bit lucky you may see a pod of Orcas, porpoise playing in the wake of the ferry, seals hauled out basking in the sun, sea otters floating by, sea birds on the wing, and an entire fishing fleet working the cold waters of the Sound.
